This report begins with an overview of multicriteria analysis methods, and the basic principles of developing mathematical models for such analysis. An overview of various representation of user prefereces is then presented, including methods based on pairwise comparisons of criteria and those based on scalarizing functions. This is followed by a summary of structures of criteria and alternatives. Next, basic properties of multi-criteria analysis are discussed, followed by a more detailed presentation of the similarities of and differences between the main methods based on scalarizing function. This report concludes that existing methods do not best meet the needs of the NEEDS project, presents the reasons, and proposes a new methodology for development. Depending upon the development and testing of this new methodology, an existing method will also be chosen as a backup for comparative or alternate use.
